Just tuned in after a long evening and was shocked to hear about the loss of Phil (and offended by the phony, not Foolish, "profile inactive" notice). Phil was a tremendous asset to the Fool and one of the few staff members whose views I took seriously. At this point, I believe it is the discussion boards that provide the best information on the Fool, and when it chooses to fire one of its best contributors, it runs the risk of becoming just another dot.com stock site. These are hard times for internet businesses. The choice to imitate network TV and rely on ad revenues instead of subscriptions has turned out badly. Even the Fool is not immune. But it needs to be careful or it will lose its loyal participants.
